Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This comparatively lavish Roy Rogers western gives priority to the songs: there are ten delivered by Roy, Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers including the popular Moonlight and Roses and Mexicali Rose. There's also a speciality number from a Mexican dance troupe. A wagon race in the last reel provides the only big action sequence. The slight plot is an old one: Roy and friends try to help Harry Shannon's impoverished old-timer, fool his visiting daughter, Sheila Ryan, into thinking he's the ranch owner he's claimed to be. Barton MacLane plays the heavy.
